I know I said I wouldn’t be back until tomorrow but here friends of ours kindly took over New Year’s Eve hosting duties which freed up some time to sit on the couch and snuggle Alder while working on this post. We have had quite the year so lets take a look back at 12 moments, one from each month of this past year.
January: We started the year off with a bang and announced that we were once again expecting!
February: We got hit with a massive snow storm (massive for Portland) and we spent a few days as a family snowed in and enjoyed playing in the snow.
March: We went on our very first hike of year and first hike at the Gorge. It was a beautiful hike and we can’t wait to head out again this year.
April: We took a vacation back to where our lives started as a family of three – Vermont. We spent 10 days visiting family and friends and showing Edith where she was born.
May: May was all about getting outside and visiting lots of Portland playgrounds.
June: We took a trip to our favorite vintage trailers at the Washington Coast. Seriously one of our favorite things of the year and we are already planning our trip for 2015.
July: Edith turned two!! I didn’t get any good pictures from our little party but here is one of her covered in dirt, chocolate and whipped coconut cream.
August: Alder Grey joined the world August 1st and started our month off on a great note.
September: We headed to the Oregon Coast with my parents for our first mini vacation as a family of four.
October: We celebrate Halloween with great friends and these cuties.
November: November was all about family time and making memories. This is from our first family of four hike in Forest Park.
December: December was a busy month with lots of fun moments but this is just one of my favorites. We like to spend one weekend morning each week at a coffee shop and above is a photo of my two little photographers at our favorite Sellwood Coffee Shop Either/Or.
Well that wraps up 2014! We are off to get ourselves ready to enjoy some dinner, drinks and an early bedtime. Cheers!
